How to Get Involved

Join our Men’s Group, which meets at 4:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in members’ homes. For additional information or to be put on the email notice list, contact Chuck Fawns.

Join the Membership and Connections team, which helps visitors move from “just looking” to connected and involved members. The team greets new visitors, answers questions, offers new member classes and helps visitors find ways to connect and belong at UCOT. Contact Sara Sautter for more information.

Volunteer with our Caring Community team to provide specific support services to those in the congregation who are from time to time in need. We have helped several members get through illness and/or accident. Services might include local rides, providing meals, hospital visits, grocery shopping, pet care, or special needs. Contact Patsy Scott. 

Volunteer to help make sack lunches for homeless men and women on certain Sundays after the service. It only takes a few minutes to build the sack lunches, and it is so appreciated by the homeless men and women in our community! Contact Annette Rubin.  

Volunteer with our Charitable Giving team to contribute to those who are in need within our community. We meet monthly on Zoom. For more information, contact Mimi Owensby.

Join the UCOT Book Group. Contact Sara Sautter for more information.

Sign up for Dinners for Six: The Unitarian Congregation of Taos knows that coming to church on Sunday is not sufficient for getting to know others in our congregational community. So one of the programs we sponsor is Dinners for Six, where six people (three couples, or two couples and two singles) are put together randomly for three dinners, one at each home. That way, everyone gets to host once, and everyone gets two opportunities to be hosted. The host sets the main course, and others bring side dishes or desserts. The date for dinners is set by each group, and the meal plan is worked out among the six individuals. Some hosts decide to choose a restaurant instead of entertaining at home. Contact Nancy Schultz.

Start a Special Interest Group: Many people have indicated an interest in small, engaged discussion groups, workshops, or activities. If you’d like to lead a group, you can recruit members by making an announcement during a service or at the beginning of a Sharing Circle. You may want to limit your group to about eight if you’re meeting in people’s homes. Then begin as you are ready and enjoy! Contact Be Scott with your ideas for starting a small group.

Bring a simple flower arrangement for a service, or bring light snacks for about 30 people to share during social hour after a service. Sign up at the big table after services. 

Take a turn making coffee for social hour after services. Sign up at the big table after services.
